is live in massachusetts, south of boston with a look at the conditions there. maria, good morning. >> well, good morning. you can see for yourself the conditions are pretty awful. the winds are anywhere from 40 to 50 miles per hour, at times gusting higher than that. you can see what it's doing to the water. then we have the overwatch along with that push of water. so we've seen a number of coastal flooding report places like nantucket having six inches of water over some spots. just over the last few hours, a buoy off of buzzard's bay, the winds gusted to 67 miles per hour. wind advisories posted all along the new england coast. they'll drop away this afternoon. that is some good news as the winds will start to ease, as the storm pulls away later tonight. still you see that potential for 30 to 40-mile-per-hour wind gusts. no doubt this will lead to some big head aches at boston logan. commuters either greeted with some flooding on the roadways or perhaps in places like worcester, mass, just to our north and west, looking at several inches of snowfall and that could continue the n
campaign in boston on tuesday night. joining us on our news line. hi ginger, good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> bill: it was not a happy night there. the word got around pretty close that things were not going romney's way didn't it? >> it was pretty clear early points in the night that he wasn't going to win but there was sort of a group that held out hope in boston. but the crowd started to dwindle, the enthusiasm was gone really early. >> bill: what were some of the signs like virginia didn't immediately go or north carolina didn't immediately or florida or ohio? is that what people were looking for? >> yeah, you were looking for wins in any of those states. and even north carolina which sort of everyone had conceded at that point. they knew that -- the obama camp had conceded. they knew that romney was going to win north carolina. i think they called new hampshire before north carolina which was not a good sign for people hoping for a romney victory. >> bill: what were they saying now the ne
if it's needed. i know the republican governor there is pressuring, there's pressure on boston, if it qualifies for a recount they would like the romney folks not ask for one. >> well, that's some real reporting. thank you very much, chuck todd, as always. joining me now, chris cillizza, msnbc political analyst. chris cillizza, what about the fiscal cliff and negotiations? what do you think the president is doing and planning and how engaged personally will he be in trying to avoid what obviously is a messy way to start a second term? >> well i think that chuck is right, there are still -- they are making sure that everyone on their team is kind of decided where they want to go. my guess would be, andrea, he's actually pretty engaged only because he's learned the lessons of his first term particularly on health care where it was sort of a well let's let congress work its will and we'll step in and get a bill together and get something done. obviously that process took a lot longer than the white house would have liked. it was significantly more contentious than the white house
-lived investments, in cases like boston, cincinnati, or cleveland, they were never allowed and all of a sudden they will now be. we go into those markets irrespective of what we see in the markets today. if there were to be a fiscal cliff event, we may slow the pace of activity in las vegas. >> do you still think the u.s. is one of the best places to invest? >> i still do think it is. but if you asked me that a couple of years ago, the rest of the world had growth, but, fortunately, the u.s. has come back. with the right medicine in this country to cure the economic circumstances, the united states economy could become one of the most dynamic investment areas. >> suzanne: the other issue that came up in the election is taxes. if they go up, what does that mean for your costumers in your business? >> an increase in taxes in the new administration is a bad idea for the american economy in every respect, and certainly for my costumers. the country is very weak. the economy is very weak. the consumers' household budgets are very weak. this is not a time for an increase. >> suzanne: how would you d

news that romney was, quote, shell-shocked when he realized he lost. "the boston globe" said the campaign had planned a big fireworks show to celebrate the victo victory. for a few moments, it was actually online and really to go. and it includes plans for the inauguration. and it says he's working on a smooth transfer of power. but now mid romney is a private citiz citizen. he doesn't have secret service protection. the campaign aides say the credit cards have been cut off and supporters say he's likely to move to his home in california. i think he just fades, says one top donor. i think we have seen for the most part the last of mitt romney. but for the party he's leaving behind, the debate is just beginning. does the gop adapt, or does it fade into relevance? is this the party of lincoln or the party of rush limbaugh. joining me is megan mccain, columnist for "the daily beast and msnbc contributor. on election night she tweeted, quote, my party has to evolve or it's gooding to die. hogan go aheadly, he's worked for both rick santorum and mike huckabee. thank you both for j
.i.e. they have v heavy rain for the cape, but boston a bit of a dry area. but the damage already done. look at these snowfall totals. central new jersey over a foot of snow. everywhere here in the light pink shading is 3 to 6 inches of snow. and new york city coming in just over 4 inches which was the earliest 4 inch snowfall ever on record for the city. beating that old record by over a month -- or i should say about a month. heavy snow continued across connecticut and so we're continuing to watch that area. but the snow that's already on the ground was blowing around, as well. still 20 to 30-mile-an-hour wind gusts. these are the peak winds we saw near 70 miles an hour near nantucket. everyone else closer to 40s in the mile per hour range. but that's enough. for the advisories that are still out there, connecticut into rhode island, we're still watching winter weather advisories and winter storm warns. and that continues up the coast into new hampshire and maine where the snowfall totals quite honestly won't be as big. switching gears a little bit, i know there's a lot of natural gas and
fireworks show over boston harbor as part of a victory celebration. the boston globe reports the romney campaign contracted with the same firm that handles boston's fourth of july fireworks and obtained a permit. but of course they ended up with nothing to celebrate. >>> a dramatic moment in a tucson courtroom today. the former congresswoman, gabrielle giffords, stares down the man who tried to kill her. we have new details from her would-be asass sin's sentencing hearing today. but not from germany. ♪ a powerful, fuel-efficient engine, but it's not from japan. ♪ it's a car like no other... inspired by a place like no other. introducing the all-new 2013 chevrolet malibu, our greatest malibu ever. ♪ [ male announcer ] it's that time of year. time for campbell's green bean casserole. you'll find the recipe at campbellskitchen.com. ♪ campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. 100% new. 100% mmm... wow, that is mmm... it's so mmm you might not believe it's a hundred calories. new yoplait greek 100. it is so good. >>> important meetings going on at the white house up on capitol hill
soul searching about the future of the party. as romney said good-bye to campaign staff at his boston headquarters yesterday, republican recriminations were already in full swing. one member of the campaign's finance committee told "the washington post," "everybody feels like they were a bunch of well meaning folks who were to use a phrase that governor romney coined to describe his opponent -- way in over their heads." plenty more republicans were more than willing to go on the record. >> the romney campaign did nothing -- zero -- nothing -- in the last few days to jump-start the governor. >> after that first debate, i don't know where that mitt romney went. i mean in the summertime, he was raising a lot of money and he was on lake winnipesaukee, he was having fun on the jet ski. >> when conservative commentator ann coulter defended romney, ingraham incredulously disagreed. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it is over. >> i'm sorry, this is going to sound cruel, but some of the times i didn't fee
flurries right there. it's all moving to the east. it's still nasty around the cape and also boston, getting strong winds this morning. look at these snow totals. greenwich, connecticut, 6". over 4.5" at central park. jfk. parts of new jersey freehold and manchester around a foot of snow has occurred with this storm. really incredible considering the time of year. so far today highest wind gusts in new york city is 36. we still have gusts out at martha's vineyard over 60 miles per hour. that's where it looks like the worst weather is at this time. overall it's gradually going to be moving out by tomorrow morning. >> is there any good weather news? >> for once i would like to talk to you charlie, without something swirling behind me there. there is good news. for the weekend it's going to be much warmer. temperatures might even be a bit above normal. and see something we see a lot here, sunshine. >>> mark strassmann made it to new york's laguardia airport. good morning. >> lots of canceled flights and with good reason. i flew in ahead of the storm. right through the w
factor right now especially close to new england. i'm south of boston. take a look. you have the boats in the water and that water is churned up. the winds consistent, 30, 40, close to 50 miles per hour sustained. over the last several hours. seen gusts still clocking in at 60 miles per hour. we had a report out towards the cape of 60 miles per hour and nantucket with a peak wind gust of 68 miles per hour and seeing reports with the consistent winds of some coastal flooding including high water over the roads in nantucket. a few trees down and led to scattered power outages. you can see behind me, higher water this morning and we are now not at high tide and not seeing the stray come up and over. that was a concern, as well. when's interesting about this storm is winding down and pulling away, wind is still going to be such a huge factor. easing winds means 20 to 30 miles per hour as we get in to the evening opposed to 40 or 50 miles per hour. but that's going to be the case even going through the end of the day today. snow not so much an issue along the coast. it's been the wind and t

and a columnist with "the boston herald", and julie roginsky, former political adviser to frank lautenberg and a fox news contributor. so the washington times comes out with an editorial that says he has no mandate. they say that he is, pointed out that he's the first president since george washington to be reelected with fewer popular votes than he was in the first term and say he's got no mandate. michael, true? >> uh, it's hard to see the mandate of a campaign that seemed to be focused almost entirely on whether or not the republicans were going to break into your home and steal your feminine hygiene products. so i can't really say he ran on this plan to do x, he's going to get it. but i don't think that means he's a lame duck. he has the power of the presidency, it's a very powerful tool. he's got the media, obviously, very cooperative. so let's just say he's a limping duck might be a better answer. megyn: is -- julie, your thoughts. because the point of the editorial is they say he was limping along already and that generally in the second terms presidents don't, you know, their power
